CFP: Reception Studies (4/15/06; MMLA, 11/9/06-11/12/06)
Reception Studies (Special Topic Session)
Midwest Modern Language Association Convention
Palmer House Hilton
This session is offered in conjunction with the Reception Study Society.
It focuses on the relationship between texts and readers, real or implied.
Particularly appropriate are papers on designations, assumptions or
practices regarding the elevated or lowly nature of texts and readers, as
well as crossing, blurring or complicating those binary categories.
However, papers on any aspect of reader-response criticism and pedagogy,
reception study, history of reading and the book, audience and
communication studies, institutional studies and histories, and feminist,
black, ethnic, gay, and postcolonial versions of these fields are welcome.
Send 250 word abstracts to westg_at_ferris.edu. Deadline: April 15.
